walker is my special guest from an increasingly colder nation's capital. neil: a 20 minute speech. david walker, unmentionable. >> he did say deficit, he didn't think that overspending. he talked about the need for tax reform and allocating government programs and health care costs. this was a left of center speech. he was talking to his base. the issues that he wants to focus on, i think we have to see what he will say about the state of the union. that is the substance about governing. his budget will come in march. people are talking about that. to me that is a very critical appointment. neil: looking at all of these issues might be critical to you, but they did not appear to be front and center to this president. they might pop up to be more important than they let on. that is in this address where you we start painting with brush broad strokes? >> the key is, as i said, this is about vision, this is about touching on issues that his base cares about. i'm really interested to see what is the state of the unit, what is his budget, and what does he do about it. neil: so many in the dem

especially business tax cuts to spur economic growth. my two cents. here is an old friend, david walker, founder, president and ceo of the come back america initiative. he knows a lot about this. david, let me ask you this. is boehner wrong to insist that a dollar debt increase should be accompanied by a spending decrease? >> the fact is we need to pay our bills. and i do however think that we have a spending problem. the federal government has gone from being 2% of the economy, 100 years ago. to 24% today. headed to 37% by 2040 absent a change in course. the republicans ought to leverage the sequester and the c.r. not to shut down the government, but we need to reduce spending. we also have to keep in mind if you try to hold the debt ceiling hostage, social security is negative cash flow. therefore, that means you could face a situation where the social security checks don't go out on time. the last time we faced that, it was 1983. and that was the only reason we got reforms. that would be a disaster. believe me if we allowed that to happen. >> i agree. i think the idea of prioritizing

's an interesting idea that was attached here, which really comes from no label, that group with david walker, and actually jim cooper, a blue dog member of the democratic coalition of tennessee introduced this original. that's why they feel if they can hit the 217 number they'll get more democrats to support this. the idea is, once this passes the house, the debt limit would be extended to may 19th and possibly worked on afterwards, but if the senate does not come up with a budget by april 17th, any salaries would go into an escrow account until 2014. it's not really no budget, no pay, it's just no budget, you'll get your money later, because we legally have to give it to you. in the senate, those guys are straight cash. i don't think a lot of them are worrying too much if they lost their government pay. >> luke russert with the phrase of the day, those guys in the senate are straight cash. i have to introduce our friend joining the panel now, fresh from a stalled amtrak train in new jersey, msnbc contributor and "the huffington post" political editor sam stein. >> great to be here. i was lo
